........experience sensations just like having a period?

I had a radical hysterectomy in my mid-twenties (kept my ovaries), now I am 46 (soon to be 47 this month) and it seems that sometimes - around the 1st of the month (not every month though- maybe once every 3 or 4 months it seems) I get cramps (feels like my guts drop about 4 inches) extreme breast tenderness and all the other symptoms (less the blood) associated with a menstrual cycle.

I don't get it! Most of the "plumbing" is gone...so why this? Does this sound like I am going through the change of life? The only thing left, physically are my ovaries...which I thought may have dried up by now....or are my hormones playing a huge part here regardless of hysterectomy?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

tbt, I had the same surgery in my early thirties. I just turned 51 and have similar symptoms. Just a few weeks ago, my breasts were very tendor. Every few months, I have an achiness on one side of my body. I do have a lot of stomach cramps, but never associated it with all of this. I don't know what my ovaries are doing in there, if they are working or not. I am way past due on an exam, but trying to make myself do that and a mammogram before summer ends. I keep waiting for those hot flashes, My mom had them bad and some friends and coworkers have them, but I haven't.

Maybe someone here has some answers because I too am curious.

TBT~

No, I did not have hysterectomy. However, lately, I've been having dysfunctional vaginal bleeding and my doctor examined me vaginally. Thank God, everything was OK. She also asked me to have blood draw test which was also, Ok. Now, she put me on the pill which I only strated yesterday.

She also asked me to have a pelvic echography which I will do in early September and asked me to see her on my 3rd month of my usage of the pill.

I'm in my early 40s, a lil younger than you. Don't know if this is menopause. My doctor said that vaginal dyscfunction is quite normal.

I hope this info is somehow helpful.

could it be because most of those symptoms are caused by hormonal changes and since you still have your ovaries, you still produce the hormones that cause them?

If you had no ovaries, I would say it's weird...but because you have working ovaries, my guess is they cause the same symptoms.

rising,

Well, I had the option at the time of the surgery to wither leave my ovaries in or out....if I ipted to have them taken out with every thing else, I was told that i would go directly into menopause - so I opted to keep them. Just kind of thought by now that they would have dried up...but I dunno.

Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to go back for a long, long overdue check-up and find out myself. I am currently uninsured - but I am sure that I can get a check up at the local health clinic - just have to make it a priority and get it done.
